The region of Chinon may be cabernet franc territory, but there is also a tiny amount of chenin blanc (2% of the wine produced here) planted. Nicolas Pointeau has been making wine in the Loire Valley since 2007 when he inherited an abandoned property of two hectares. Today he has grown to 13 hectares and he works the farm organically. This is a bright, mineral expression of Chenin with notes quince, apricot, and lemongrass. A delight as a aperitif and an ideal pairing with seafood or end of season squash.
